In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Get in touch with nature at Swim with Dolphins and Sunset Beach Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, get great views at Puu Ualakaa State Park, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

For where to stay, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu travel planner.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
